Stephanie and Paul at the Parker and in the Desert // Palm Springs Wedding Photographer

palm-springs-wedding-photographer-28

I love these two. I feel incredibly blessed to photograph so many amazing couples that I genuinely like and want to be friends with, but these two are extra special. I photographed their wedding (see pictures of their beautiful Bay Area wedding) a few years back and it was an absolute DREAM to photograph them again for their 10 year date-iversary in the Palm Springs area.

Stephanie and Paul are just good people. They are warm, hospitable, and as authentic as they come. They really like (and, of course, love) each other and are so easy to spend time with.

For this shoot Stephanie knew that she wanted the first half at The Parker Palm Springs and the second half in the desert with their favorite tequila. They trusted my interpretation of their ideas and we had SO much fun. I love these two and these photos of them at this time in their life. Thank you so much, Stephanie and Paul, for the privilege of photographing you again and letting me spend the weekend with you! If only we could hang out all the time!

Ashley and Phil in Bidwell Park and Downtown /// Chico Engagement Photographer

First of all, aren’t Ashley and Phil SUCH a good looking couple? More importantly, they’re kind, adventurous, fun, and their obvious love and affection for each other made my job so easy. I love couples whose love is natural and easy and who are obviously such a perfect fit.

We started their engagement shoot in front of the adorable Wild Ink Press storefront and ended it in a few of my favorite spots in Bidwell Park. I love Ashley’s outfits and can you believe that engagement ring? Rose gold perfection!

Ashley and Phil, I am so excited for your wedding day and am so glad you are creating the celebration that is perfect for the two of you!

Katie & Danny on Table Mountain // Chico Wedding Photographer

katie-danny-blog-3

Katie and Danny are the best. They live in Southern California, but are having their wedding at Lake Almanor and wanted to come up to the Chico area for their engagement session. I suggested Table Mountain and they were up for it. We hadn’t met in person until the day of their photos, but they trusted me enough to follow me up there where I (unintentionally) took them a random back way. The more we drove the more I was freaking out that we weren’t even headed to Table Mountain until all the sudden, there we were.

I had so much fun hiking around and photographing these two. Katie and Danny are easy going and their love is sweet and easy. Like the location of the session, they were up for anything. They are getting married TODAY up in the mountains with only a handful of the people closest to them in an intimate weekend and ceremony. I cannot wait to capture them become husband and wife.

Katie and Danny, it’s an honor to be a part of your special day. I know you will have a beautiful life together!
